The Vitamin C Connection Flavonoids usually are found alongside vitamin C in nature. Vitamin C is conveniently found in the pulp of many fruits, while the skins contain the flavonoids. It might be prudent, when giving vitamin C, to supplement with a flavonoid-rich extract, since studies have shown that supplementing vitamin C with flavonoids might prevent the breakdown of vitamin C in the tissues.

A team of healthcare professionals is needed in order to effectively treat your whole being; not just your 'parts.'
